75th Masters Tournament

Today begins Masters Week in Augusta. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are practice days with the Tournament running Thursday through Sunday. The first Tournament was held in 1934 and every year thereafter except for a 3-year hiatus from 1943 to 1945. The Augusta National Golf Club was closed during WWII and in support of the war effort, the Course grounds were used for raising cattle and turkeys.
